versatile and lovely.

versatile     one-lovely-blog-award
Again, I am honored and humbled to be selected for a blogging award… or two. It’s so satisfying to know people out there are enjoying my blog.
six word third.

I am now versatile and lovely. I may develop an ego for the first time in my life… because I’m already neat and epically awesome. And I’ve now taken the 3rd place position twice in the Six-Word Story Challenge here. [For believe and memory — thank you everyone who ‘liked’ my entries!]

Thanks, my kind friend, Paul for the Versatile Blogger Award nomination. Paul is super nice and encouraging to everyone. Visit him!

And thank you, my lovely friend Tiegan at Harbour for the One Lovely Blog Award. She is a young, wonderfully creative artist and writer. Visit her!

Versatile Rules [which I may loosely follow!]
1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Include a link to their blog.
3. Select 15 blogs that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Lovely Rules [which are easier for me to follow!]
1. You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
2. List the rules and display the award.
3. Add seven facts about yourself.
4. Nominate however many other bloggers (this is a fluctuating number for everyone) and let them know about their nomination!

I’ll say what I always say – visit these blogs I’ve listed – they are wonderful and written by wonderful people. And I think they are both versatile and lovely!

To the bloggers I’ve listed – Do with this what you will… respond or don’t, take one award or both; go crazy or ignore. Whatever makes you happy. I’m just giving you a big fat pat on the back for being great. [And there aren’t 15… so I’m breaking the versatile rules… that’s just how versatile I am… ha!]

14 things about me
[7 for the versatile award + 7 for the lovely award, in one big fat list]

  1. I stay up way too late every night… into the wee morning hours.
  2. My favorite thing on Saturday Night Live is Weekend Update.
  3. I write and work better with music playing than I do without.
  4. I watch (and enjoy) a LOT of animated television and movies, some intended for kids and some for adults… Archer, We Bare Bears, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012 TV series), Tangled, Big Hero 6, Regular Show, almost any Disney or Pixar movie… I could go on.
  5. I live in northeastern USA and I’ve been to 8 countries in Europe but I’ve never been to Canada.
  6. I’ve traveled in the US along parts of the east coast and west coast, but only one place in between.
  7. I’ve always had this dream of going to Hawaii and meeting a hot surf instructor. (Sorry, John.)
  8. I found out I was pregnant with my first child on Mother’s Day.
  9. I have a tattoo.
  10.  I think whipped cream is gross.
  11. Morrissey was (is) my idol and I’ve seen him live 6 times.
  12. I lived in London for a stretch during college (went to school there) and I wanted to stay forever. [But Dad wasn’t footing the bill forever and I would have lasted about a week on my own.]
  13. I have a huge preference for men who are not clean-shaven. [Gotta have some stubble or something… sigh… dreamy]
  14. I still have about fifty things to do before Christmas…

xo ♥


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    • Oh – don’t worry about it! 🙂 I got the lovely one today but the versatile one was at least a week ago, I think. And I never follow all the rules. On the awards. Or on anything else. I can’t come up with enough blogs to nominate for things ever — I’ve already nominated all of my favorites for many of these… I’m going to start repeating myself. Actually, I’m pretty sure I already have! I should make up an award — “put this pretty award up on your site and the pass it along to someone else if you feel like it… or not”. What do you think? Hahaha! I can call it the lazy award. 🙂

    I hope the content and presentation of my blog entries, as well as the design of the blog, are interesting enough to qualify me for a blogging or blogger award.

    I can never deal with music when I’m working; everyone I know says to me that they need it to work efficiently as you do. But I’m too distracted because I know the lyrics and I’m listening for them rather than writing…
